Study Shows 3 Out Of 4 U.S. Mosques Hotbeds Of Anti-West Extremism

This is alarming:

The Mapping Sharia in America Project, sponsored by the Washington-based Center for Security Policy, has trained former counterintelligence and counterterrorism agents from the FBI, CIA and U.S. military, who are skilled in Arabic and Urdu, to conduct undercover reconnaissance at some 2,300 mosques and Islamic centers and schools across the country.

“So far of 100 mapped, 75 should be on a watchlist,” an official familiar with the project said.

Many of the Islamic centers are operating under the auspices of the Saudi Arabian government and U.S. front groups for the radical Muslim Brotherhood based in Egypt.

Frank Gaffney, a former Pentagon official who runs the Center for Security Policy, says the results of the survey have not yet been published. But he confirmed that “the vast majority” are inciting insurrection and jihad through sermons by Saudi-trained imams and anti-Western literature, videos and textbooks.

So far 102 Mosques and schools have been looked at. Preliminary findings include:

  • Ultra-orthodox worship in which women are separated from men in the prayer hall and must enter the mosque from a separate, usually back, entrance; and are required to wear hijabs.
  • Sermons that preach women are inferior to men and can be beaten for disobedience; that non-Muslims, particularly Jews, are infidels and inferior to Muslims; that jihad or support of jihad is not only a Muslim’s duty but the noblest way, and suicide bombers and other so-called “martyrs” are worthy of the highest praise; and that an Islamic caliphate should one day encompass the U.S.
  • Solicitation of financial support for jihad.
  • Bookstores that sell books, CDs and DVDs promoting jihad and glorifying martyrdom.

Of course, Mapping Sharia In America isn’t alone in its concern. Congressman Peter King (R. NY), puts the number of extremist mosques at 85%.

Here he is on The Neil Caputo Show last year, making his case:

  1. This is not the least bit surprising.
    I’m pretty sure the FBI is well aware of the danger of mosques in this country, and what happens inside them.

    Pretty sure.


  2. A question that I often ask when I am behind liberal lines, as I often am, is this;

    If we withdraw all of our troops and end all sanctions etc for all of our “percieved” enemies and they still attack us and call for our destruction, then what?

    I have yet to get an answer after asking it appx. 20 times… try it, let me kow what you find out…


  3. In answere to TRM’s question: If we withdraw all of our troops and end all our sanctions, of course they (the Muslims) will continue to call for our destruction and continue to attack us – just as they have for the past 1400 years. The fact that seems to have escaped our president and our military leaders is that the war against terrorism is a war against Islam’s ideology – and a war against an ideology can’t be won through physical conflict – it has to be won by defeating Islam’s ideology – and that can only be accomplished by learning the truth about Islam, exposing it for the sickness that it is and offering those who are currently Muslims a much better way of life. All that’s being accomplished by the wars in Afganistan and Iraq is the loss of American lives, the depletion of our military strength, the expenditure of a huge amount of money (720 billion at last count), and the creation of thousands of new terrorists. If you want to learn the truth about islam and the wars that we are fighting, go to http://www.jihadwatch and watch the movie there entitled “Islam: What the West Needs to Know”.


  4. All that’s being accomplished by the wars in Afganistan and Iraq is the loss of American lives…

    Not really. The point of establishing a US-friendly, reasonably-secular democracy in the heart of the Middle East is to find a third path – a path of peaceful coexistence with Islam, and the marginalization of fundamentalism. An effort that in itself will “defeat Islam’s ideology” through example. There’s no quick path to changing an ideology, and it can’t be accomplished by the steps you describe.

    Depletion of our military strength? Old canard. The “unsustainable Surge” was sustained and is over. We’re drawing down our troops abroad and building them up at home. And the biggest strain on the military, the 15-month tours, has been reduced back to 12-month tours.

    “The creation of thousands of new terrorists”

    Heh. How’s that working out for them?

    And we’ve all been to Jihad Watch, pretty much since it started.
